Summary

The Saints lost Ben Watson, who signed a two-year $8 Million contract with Baltimore in free agency, but added Coby Fleener as their starting tight end. He didn't come cheap, signing a five-year $36 Million contract. Fleener has never been praised as a blocker, but Coach Payton said that he could be an exciting addition to their offense based on his skill set. Expect Fleener to be used in a variety of ways in the passing game, frequently stretching the seam. Fantasy expectations are high for him this season based on Brees' history of effectively using his tight end. Even though somewhat effective as a move tight end in Indianapolis, Fleener only averaged 88 targets per season in his best three seasons with the Colts. He has career highs of 54 receptions, 774 yards and 8 TDs. Fleener is not expected to receive Jimmy Graham target volume, but he still could set career highs this season. Fleener is a decent red zone target, witnessed by his 17 TDs in Indianapolis. (May 21)
